“I have the pleasure of knowing and fished with Calvin for well over 30 years. His reputation providing great service and top production on saltwater fishing outings is widely recognized by his fellow charter operators and current and past clients alike.

Calvin has spared no expense in providing a flawlessly maintained, comfortable and well-appointed boat as well as a full complement of the most modern high-end fishing gear and tackle. 

His knowledge of local coastal waters is extensive and his list of marine charter certifications exceeds the usual government requirements. Calvin is known for his innovative salmon fishing methods and his consistent results.

His love of the sport and longtime experience gives him the ability to be successful using some of the older light tackle and traditional methods of Campbell River fishing, as well as the usual currently accepted methods. Years prior to his becoming an independent charter boat skipper and top salmon fishing guide, Calvin was employed as a guide at the Dolphins Resort (“Famous for Fishing”) in Campbell River (“Salmon Fishing Capital”).

At Dolphins Resort he was always a top producer and a highly requested guide. Calvin’s reputation for timelines, energy, and preparation is well known among his peers. He is a committed family man and great with kids. He knows how to provide a memorable experience to both seasoned fisher people and first-timers.

Calvin is definitely in the upper echelon of fishing guides and is sure to provide a safe, comfortable and exciting outdoor adventure.”
